A while back I decided to switch to an SSD for my OS storage for the speed boost. At the same time I realised that the majority of time it takes for my PC to start up, was due to hanging PRIOR to loading the OS. Over a minute in fact.
Apparently, my keyboard and/or mouse were trumping the boot order somehow. In any case, disabling USB Legacy Support fixed this issue, it booted nearly instantly after that.
Fast forward to now, I've decided to get into Linux and dual boot. Unfortunately, due to disabling the aforementioned, my wireless keyboard is not detected at boot. This means I can't make a choice in the GRUB menu when it comes up.
This is not optimal. :(
I verified the USB issue by re-enabling legacy support, at which point I could use my keyboard to select an option. (It also caused the hang before loading the OS to return.)
Switching to a 3.0 port, with all the 3.0 stuff enabled and 2.0 legacy support disabled, did nothing. Unable to use the keyboard, boot was fast.
I'm sensing that, if there is a solution to this conflict, it lies in resolving the boot issue without disabling USB Legacy Support.
Any suggestions appreciated. :)
